Heartworm Prevention


Prevention is key! We recommend being safe than sorry!

What is heartworm disease?

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. All it takes is one bite from an infected mosquito for your pet to get heartworms. The foot-long worms (heartworms) live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure, and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats, and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions, and—in rare instances—humans. Because wild species such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered important carriers of the disease.

Just one dose of ProHeart 12 provides protection for your dog all year long.

It can be tough to remember monthly medications for your dog, and heartworm disease is a year-round threat.

ProHeart 12 can be used in healthy dogs that are one year or older. Because puppies grow rapidly, they tend to need different dosages of heartworm preventative each month, based upon their weight.
